. in the north bay. >> joining us fire battalion chief, jeff. >> good morning. can you give us a sense of what you are dealing with in petaluma. go to our facebook fan section, www.kron4.com >> caller: >> this predicted flooding was a bit earlier than expected. we do have some wind related events with trees and hot power lines hanging down. we have agents standing by waiting for pg&e to come out and to remedy that situation. we are monitoring the water, the rivers, it is rising. there is still room to go but no flooding as of yet. >> chief, predictions on flooding the specific waterways? does that mean that it is to not as bad as you thought possible compared to previous years? >> is not as bad as usual, yet. a couple of good things. there is still room to grow for the water. our high tide was 4:4:05 a.m. so the tide is going out will make room for more room and water. hot on the downside, there is water in the river is rising faster than normal. i think that is because there is a saturation. we have not had a lot of rainfall. perhaps not even 1 in.. but the rivers are where they were to morni
. >> jeff? >> well, the reporters were not trained to work with people who have been through trauma and yes, we want the kids to talk about it as quickly as possible which is part of the debriefing, that trained police officers and mental health experts are doing but you can actually retraumatize the child if you are not asking the proper questions, so perhaps we need to pull back on that a little bit. >> it is interesting because the debate that emerged around us for us is on the one hand as you say, what feels wrong or what we may know is potentially re-traumatizing, but on the other hand not wanting to sanitize something this horrible, because in part, because this is, this is disgustingly horrible and if we make it just sort of the tears of adults then we miss what has happen happened here. >> i think that we have counter vailing values here. so that the press has a duty to get in there and try to figure out what happened. the police have a duty, and that doesn't always mean releasing everything that you heard in the press conference, melissa, and the families going through the mass mur
may be at least a decade behind in gdeveloping their own supplies. >>> my krchlcnbc colleague jeff cutmore live overseas. this is good news at least in the short term, right? >> absolutely, brian. and a very good morning to you. good to see you anchoring the program this morning. the u.s. has such a strong lead in this area. it's hard to see how companies trying to find this shale gas elsewhere around the world are going to have the same kind of success. we've seen millions of wells drilled in the united states. we're just seeing in countries like poland pioneering one or two initial wells being drilled by companies like chevron. so the potential is out there. it's just going to take a whole lot longer to get it out of the ground and to the consumer. and a couple of real issues here. one is yes, we're way behind in terms of the program. i mean, countries like china may have the same reserves of gas as the u.s. has. but it's just going to take a whole lot longer getting to them. and the second one is a lot of these countries don't have the same distribution infrastructure in place u
of conflict and humanitarian crisis. jeff, why is it that the crisis seems to be heating up? you point out that the congo that the government's army is losing battle after battle. being routed in battle after battle by the rebels. >> i think this is really an issue of state failure. i've been covering congo for six years and i've seen the country get weaker and weaker since i began. there was a big election in 2006 that created a lot of hope and enthusiasm that things were turning around. they haven't. since then, the government has become more authoritarian, more corrupt, more rebel groups. what we are seeing is a symptom and cause. it's a symptom of this weak state that can't control its own territory. watch the couple hundred rebels march into the big es city in the country and they didn't do much about it. that's also a cause. now that the rebels have taken goma, a lot of other opposition groups are starting to think wait, maybe now is the time to really take on the government, and people are smelling blood in the water, and that's the worry that these rebels in eastern congo do not ha

with whom i had the honor to serve these past two years, senator jeff bingaman of new mexico, chairman of the energy committee. simply one of the kindest, smartest, gentlest people i've ever met. it's been a great pleasure working with him on the energy and natural resources committee. i remember we were both speaking at a conference on advanced energy research this last year out at national harbor. thousands of scientists, investors and entrepreneurs were there. i pulled up in front of the massive convention hall and right out in front, prius with new mexico plates. sure enough, chairman jeff bingaman jumps out of the driver's seat -- no staff -- so here's the chairman of the senate energy committee, a senator for nearly 30 years, driving himself to a major policy speech in his prius. practicing what he preaches, prepared to deliver an important speech in a moment that showed his humility. as unassuming a man as senator bingaman is, when he speaks, you listen. he's living proof that the value of one's words can and should exceed their volume. that day at national harbor, senator binga

clear that founder jeff bezos and his notoriously secretive company had bigger plans. they started expanding in the late 1990s into videos, music, games, electronics, kitchenware, clothing, shoes, jewelry, business services, information storage. amazon turned the corner to profitability in 2002, and today, amazon is a $100 billion global company. and though bezos declined our request for an interview, he recently told "fortune" magazine's andy serwer -- >> our goal is to be the most customer obsessed company. is there someone doing some element better than we? if so, how do we improve? >> online shopping is still only 10% of total retail. >> reporter: meaning amazon in all likelihood is just getting started. ben stein told me recently he has never seen a company dominate a market quite the way amazon is right now. this is a huge, huge story this holiday season. the big question, of course, is, what's going to happen to all the jobs that go in the traditional brick and mortar stores? we don't really know. will they go away? will there be more of them? find out more of those answers

.5%. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to jeff. >> brown: george washington famously described the senate as "the saucer that cools the tea," a body designed to soothe "hot" legislation that emerged from the house of representatives. but as congressional correspondent kwame holman reports, some senators have gotten pretty steamed over a proposed change to how their chamber operates. >> holman: a sign of the holiday season-- the u.s. capitol christmas tree arrived in washington on monday. but behind the festive scene outside, there was a partisan war raging inside on the floor of the senate. the combatants-- democratic majority leader harry reid and republican minority leader mitch mcconnell. >> americans believe congress is broken. once again, the only ones who disagree are mitch mcconnell and the republican party. >> i've never said the senate's working fine. i think the senate's been disastrously run for the last two years. >> the american people know, democrats and republicans, that this place isn't working and there needs to be some changes so that we can proceed
by william. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to jeff. >> brown: how tough is too tough when it comes to sports and brain injuries? it's an issue we've followed over a number of years. today there was new data to chew on. week after week the big hits keep attracting big audiences to professional and college football. but concerns over head injuries in football and other sports have also continued. the connection between repeated blows and a degenerative brain disease known as c.t.e. the latest evidence comes from a new report from boston university that's been published in the scientific journal brain. the four-year study examined brain autopsies of 85 male donors ranging from age 17 to 98 which included football players at various levels, boxers, hockey players and a group of veterans. they've found evidence of c.t.e. in 68 cases, almost all of them athletes. football players included linemen, running backs and tighteneds who had received repeated hits throughout their careers. one was the late john macky profiled with his wife sylvia in 2009 by ray suarez. >> suarez: i
most popular and respected members, senator jeff bingaman of new mexico. when jeff came to this body 30 years ago, he had already led a life of accomplishment created in small-town new mexico, silver city. he was an eagle scout, graduated from harvard college, stanford law school, where he met his future wife, ann. while at stanford, he worked in senator robert f. kennedy's campaign for president. at the age of 35, he was elected new mexico attorney general in 1978. and four years later at the age of 39, elected to the united states senate. during his three decades in this body, jeff bingaman has been a classic workhorse senator as opposed to being a show horse senator. he is truly remarkable and distinctive among senators for his willingness to shun the limelight and share the credit in order to get important things done for his state and for this country. senator bingaman has been a much valued colleague of mine on the health, education, labor and pensions committee, but he has really made his mark in the senate a lasting mark in his role as chair of the energy and natural resources c
this program. here is what senator jeff sessions told me. >> it's a guaranteed thing. it's an entitlement program. that means if you meet the income qualifications, the government must give you the money. whether the government has any money to give you or not. if they don't they have to borrow it. that's what we're doing. >> reporter: by the way the food stamp program is exempt from sequestration. even if we go over the fiscal cliff those benefits will still be paid out even if lawmakers don't reach a deal. senator sessions did try to pass something in the senate that would have put food stamps on the table for the fiscal cliff negotiations and failed in the senate. jenna: let me ask you that is it part of the fiscal cliff negotiations or are food stamps in their own column right now? >> reporter: he tried. it is considered an entitlement program so it has to be funded. he did try to get the specific measure passed in the senate and it failed. jenna: any response from the administration on this? >> reporter: we reached out to the white house on this and want to give them opportunity to e

and member of the house foreign affairs committee, mr. jeff duncan. good to have you on. first of all, why haven't we heard from hillary clinton? i understand concussions. i know them all too well. but really? three, four weeks now to testify? >> well, she needs to testify and i think she will. i'm optimistic she will. her office verified she was ill. i know the travel schedule, she gets worn down. i'll give her the benefit of the doubt. she needs to come testify. she was the person in charge at the department of state on september 11 when the attack in benghazi happened. and there are questions that need to be answered. >> kelly: there have been some people who criticized hillary clinton for what happened in benghazi and because of that, there has been the innuendo that she didn't want to testify. however, i don't see that being part of her character. she will testify this month, because she would like to put this to rest before she actually retires. >> i think she will. i think it's about her legacy now. she was in charge. i think she's willing to come and testify. she always ha

, good morning to you jeff. >> good morning, thanks for having me on. >> i would say so. and it's a little rough on the n.r.a., but if you look at the overall approval rating, they think higher than president obama and higher than the media covering as well. >> dave: maybe the speech from wayne lapierre didn't represent perfectly members of the n.r.a. i know, some weren't happy about maybe the lack of consoling to the victims and maybe some sensible proposal for some sort of reform in this country and maybe that's the problem here is that speech may not exactly represent the n.r.a. members in this country. >> right, now, i think the n.r.a. does have some pr issues to work out, you know and leading up to that press conference, they talked a lot about some major reforms and probably left a little people wondering, probably expecting something a little bit bigger. >> dave: the n.r.a. has millions of members and when you're talking about the mainstream media, it's all in this tiny bubble here in the northeast, has very little representation of most of the people in this country that
the first person, was the receptionist, she was great. and jeff brown, he took me through it. it wasn't a hard sales pitch. in fact, we couldn't even do anything for two weeks. so in that time we started with the orientation and training and every time we did, took a step closer and it was good. >> steve: it's been great for you so far. i know you've been a stay at home mom. you were looking for something. now your brother could actually work for you if he chooses. david, this is the kind of story you're looking for. >> exactly right. we have 30 master territories in operation presentsly with approximately 2200 unit franchisees such as yvonne and look for additional veterans to come in at a higher level to purchase these master territories. hence our discounted program. >> steve: got you. this is a company that specializes in janitorial services, right? >> yes. all business to business. >> steve: all right. so you've already got two businesses who have said, you needs? we want your business to clean our business. >> that's right. i'm cleaning up. >> steve: you are cleaning up. it's tu

to give this president that kind of power. host: jeff, good morning. caller: good morning. with republicans being cornered as far as the blame, why don't the republicans just vote and pass bills and sent it to the senate and put it in the hands of democrats and let's see what comes down the road. if it crashes, it crashes. it away, the democrats need to take responsibility. guest: we have to do what is necessary to correct the deficiencies of our operating national business. when you say the republicans should take a position and do what is right, the american people are in the dark of how negotiations work. if you are serious about negotiations and about solving the fiscal cliff -- it is a fiscal slide because you keep sliding. i have learned that if you want to negotiate and come to compromises and conclusions, you do that without cameras and you do that behind closed doors. once the negotiations are exposed, people react differently and they are compromise. we need to get away from the cameras. the president and john boehner, get away from their staffs and do a give-and

. royce: i thank the gentlelady for yielding. i'd just like to begin by thanking jeff duncan and his staff as well for their good work on this legislation. but i would remind the members in terms of iranian activity in this hemisphere, we think what first comes to mind is the attack in the 1990's in argentina, but more recently hezbollah has penetrated our borders and one example i would give to you is a man trained by iranian intelligence. he paid a bribe in order to get to mexico from beirut. once in mexico he paid a second bribe, this time to a cartel group in order to have himself inserted in a special compartment in the back of a car. the reason is he important is because it was his brother who was in charge for security in israel and during the hezbollah war, and i was there at the time, i saw those missiles that were ordered launched by hezbollah into a town that was under attack. there were some 600 casualties in that hospital trarp a direct result of those iranian and syrian missiles that were being fired on the hospital. frankly it was one of the targets. but fired on that town,

in those kinds of shenanigans again. that's unacceptable. yes, jeff? >> speaking. debt ceiling, does an agreement have to be part of the agreement to divert the fiscal cliff? >> we're not going to negotiate over what is a fundamental responsibility of congress, which is to pay the bills that congress incurred. it should be part of the deal. it should be done. it should be done without drama. we cannot allow our economy to be held hostage again to the whims of an ideological agenda. it's -- we are the united states of america. we are the greatest economy on earth. we pay our bills. we always have. you know, if congress wants to reduce spending, that should be part of the negotiations that go into making decisions about how we spend, you know, the programs we spend money on, and the president's very interested in reducing spending and reducing our deficits, but you don't default on the economy. that is -- we saw -- >> [inaudible] >> yes. we saw what happened in 2011, and it's unacceptable. >> did the president have to chance to speak to republicans last night at the reception here abou
